He already and they’re ready to take them to the hospital. If need be, I can go to the CDC to find out exactly what’s going on, but there are other kind of organizations similar organizations all around the world. There’S CDC Africa. They all work independently. I’M wondering if there is international cooperation when it comes to figuring out a vaccine or treatment. There are a lot of companies, not just hear the us. There are several here in the US, but there are companies around the world that are working on a vaccine and some are medications that they’ve already developed.
For instance, there is a company in California here that is testing out of medication. It was successful for Ebola. Another company is using a medication that works for AIDS patients and some of those medication have already been tried on coronavirus. Patients, in fact, that first coronavirus patient we had here at the US in Seattle was given a dose of that medication that was intended for Ebola and he was better in 2 days slowly but surely were making some progress.
